In Episode 27, we will discuss the amazing subject of grace. Just like the love of God can be both over-emphasized and under-emphasized, so too the grace of God is often both over and under-simplified. Today, I will be discussing the various ways the Koine Greek word charis (grace) is used in Scripture, and highlight a few ways the early Christians used charis in their writings.
By way of housekeeping, at the end of every episode of RTF, I include an original song. I pray those have been a blessing to you. A few months ago I began recording a 7 song EP of original songs I’ve written over the last 5 years. This can be quite a costly endeavor, so to help cover the cost of production, I’ve created a GoFundMe Campaign. For those who contribute $20, you will receive a hard copy of the 7 song EP, plus a demo CD of acoustic versions of 5 additional songs. For those who contribute $30 or more, in addition to the EP and demo, I will include a copy of my book, New Wineskins and the Simple Words of Christ.

My book New: Wineskins and the Simple Words of Christcan be found on Amazon, and if it’s a blessing to you, please leave an honest review there.
